Winner of the 2016 Spelling Bee
Competition, Master Olaseinde
Olufemi Joshua, on Friday narrated
how his father, Mr. Olaseinde missed
the meeting with Lagos State
Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode
and members of the State Executive

Joshua, a student of Shasha
Community Senior High School in
Alimosho area of Lagos State, who
spoke at the Lagos House in Ikeja
while being hosted as the 16th One-
day Governor of the State, said his
father would have loved to be
present at the event but was unable
to attend due to some health

Besides, Joshua described Governor,
Ambode as the most labour-
friendly Governor in Nigeria.

He said despite the dwindling
allocation from the Federal
Government, Governor Ambode has
remained committed to the prompt
payment of workers salary.

He said, “While over 29 states of
the federation cannot afford to pay
their workers, I really commend
the Governor’s hard work and
determination to take Lagos State
to the highest level.” Joshua added
that so far, Governor Ambode had
lived up to the true meaning of the
acronym of his name which he
described as “AMBODE –
Ambassadors of Meritorious,
Brilliant, Organised and Dedicated

Responding, Governor Ambode
ordered that Joshua’s father be
treated at the medical facilities of
the State Government.

A deeply touched Governor Ambode
said: “It is unfortunate that his
father could not make it for this
very special occasion in the life of
his child but will be attended to in
the health facilities of the State

Besides, Joshua was given a laptop,
printer and generating set courtesy
of the Governor’s Office while
other winners of the competition
were given tab each.
